Transfer news: The Londoners must pay top dollar for Internacional star Oscar
Brazilian side Internacional have insisted that Chelsea or Tottenham must break the transfer record for Brazilian football if they want to sign Oscar.
The Londoners have both been linked with the 20-year-old but Inter chief Giovanni Luigi has laid out his terms and conditions.
“I want the transfer of Oscar to be the biggest transfer deal ever in Brazilian football,” Luigi told Radio Gaucha.
“And the Chelsea offer isn’t that far from that.”
However, Luigi admitted that they would have no qualms about keeping Oscar - just as they did with Leandro Damiao.
“Last year Tottenham made two offers for Leandro Damiao. We kept him and he was very important,” he continued.
“He is Internacional’s top scorer in Libertadores and Brazil’s national team number 9.
“Oscar’s situation is similar. I’m part of an administration that has always been competent to replace those players that leave.
“If regarding Oscar we get offers that match our expectations, we’ll negotiate.
“But they have to be of the value that mean significant resources for Internacional. But those values would be the biggest negotiation in Internacional’s history.”
